  7. CC Speedway Past Champions

    James Mikulencak won 3--4 from mid 70's to early 80's in Super Stock and I'm pretty sure Dennis McClain won two super stock champ. in the 80's. Monty got a couple late 70's to early 80's, Dub Rollins several thru the 60's into early 70's and I'm guessin Rick Rapp and Slick Yeomen may have each had a couple from 75-83

  18. CC Speedway's #11

    I realize im a few years behind in this converstion but im gona add my two cents anyhow. 1973 was the first time I went to CC my father and oldest brother were the crew for Johnny Thomas out of mathis they won 2-3 stocker championships in the mid 70's. Until I left Texas in 1990 I didnt miss but a handfull of races and was a good friend of Mac and Dennis McClain so i helped them out in the pits anytime they needed. To get to the point and the topic of this discussion there is no doubt Monty was fast anytime he showed up as far as what he did in S.A. r Houston I never saw him race at either one. I very much agree that the equipment Monty was running was far superior to all of the local racers, im sure Fryar and several others at both of the other big tracks had the same equipment Monty had. And I will just say what no one else would the reason u dont hear Monty mentioned with other drivers of that era James Mikulencak, Slick Yeomans, Rick Rapp which in my opinion were the best at that time. Say between 1976-1984 and I may b off a year r so not that there wasnt other good drivers Rollins, Hardcastle, Flanagan, Unitas, Edwards, Sanders, Baldwin, Wells, etc. To the best of my memory Beddoe didnt start runnin super stocks till mid 80's and Denman after him which by then Dennis McClain was winning his fair share of races/championships and Lawrence Mikulencak was a force also. Back to Monty he was NOT well liked for several reasons he was young and had $$ which at that time was very uncommon, his driving style was very aggressive kinda like dale sr. on steroids!! Personally I didnt know Monty although we both grew up in Calallen/Tuloso area but i sure as hell didnt root for him. I honestly dont remember Freddy ever racing at CC but I do remember a super stock #0 from Houston coming down for a 100 lap race and leading 80 r so laps before tires went away r it may have broke but Tom Riley would show up anytime there was a big purse and he was a threat to win every time. As far as the best to ever race at CC even though he split his time on the asphalt with the 1/2 mile dirt at cuddihy before spending his last years in texas strictly at S.A. and Houston has to be Texas Terry. Does anyone remember him coming back I think early 80's and driving James Mikulencak car in a feature race. He started scratch and had no problems coming thru the field to win going away. I'd like to see how many times he raced against Fryar cuz i really doubt that Freddie won very many of those races!
